    Our current buyout system and rules is as follows:
    • A player issued a normal season ban have the option to buyout said ban and return to the league immediately
      • 1st offense bans are $50
      • 2nd offense bans are $75
    • A manager issued a ban during the season is ineligible to buyout their ban and return to the league in which they were banned from in the same season the ban is issued.
    Over the last few season we have seen a few issues such as:
    1. Player quits the league, buyouts their ban only to return to the league in a lower tier within the same season the ban is issued.
    2. Player quits the league only to buyout the ban and return to the sister league IE Xbox LGHL or PSN LGHL
    The question that I have been asked often by some members of manage and the community is would the league consider going to a "Ban Reduction Buyout" over the current system? This how the reduction system would look:
    • A player is issued a standard ban [$50 or $75]. These bans are a standard two season ban, OR three season ban later on in the season. The player would be given the same ability to buy the ban out, but rather than being a buyout that returns the player to the LGHL that same season, it would simply reduce the ban to a one season ban. This means all players issued a ban, would be required to serve a MINIMUM of one season regardless if the buyout fine was paid or not.
    • This system would mirror the current buyout system in place for managers.



    * Keep in mind there would be no changes to the Capital Offence Bans *

    * The buyout reduction would be linked to the LGHL PSN and XBOX, therefore paying the fine early, would still allow access to other leagues like FNP, SNP, ESHL, etc *

    If the league plans on having a 4 tier system (NHL, AHL, ECHL, CHL) where the ECHL can be a league for late sign ups and players who get banned can buy out and only be delegated to play in the ECHL.

    Just to clarify the poll is asking if you if you agree all bans should be like a “manager” ban which means a player cannot buyout his or her ban within the same season the ban is issued”

    #1 is yes to the above statement

    #2 is no

    If they are banned it is for a reason and should sit one season before being able to buy back in. U will only piss off the cancers to this league that are getting banned

    Since this was me last season, I’ll chime in.

    I would say the buyout process should be changed to where it doesn’t favor the player so much, but buyouts should still be allowed. Sometimes life circumstances change or people have a change of heart.

    the issue is when I buyout I basically get a free pass to the AHL or CHL and off the team I don’t want to play for. Change that before we take away league revenue, in my opinion.

    It should go one step further and ban for the duration. People quitting because their egos get hurt is by far the worst part of this league.

    No they should not be able to, there has to be some consequence for what ever action cause them to get banned in the first place. now i dont wanna make things confusing but in regards to players not responding to owners and getting banned or something along those lines then yes but if they buy out their ban in the same season but they should have to remain on the team that banned them and if that owner should wish to trade them or keep them it is entirely up to them. When some ones gets banned for player tampering or second tagging and issue like that then no they should not be able to buy out a ban to be able to play in the same season. i will say that not all bans are fair and LG is strict and when a rule is broken for what ever the reason they usually issue a ban. If the bogs are willing to decipher which ban should be allowed to be bought out so they can continue playing in that season then we could possible work out something for certain bans to be bought out for the player to remain in the current season.

    Letting the player buy out basically gives them what they want cause no owner is going to want them anyway, so they basically paid to get off of the team they are on. It's probably good money for the league, but ruins the integrity.

    All of you are acting like every person that gets banned deserves a punishment or something

    I think you should be able to buy it out right away. I was banned at the beginning of this season for registering on xbox by mistake and unregistrering 1 day too late as the bidding had already begun. Not having the option to buy it out right away would have made me miss the psn season when it's the one I wanted to play all along.

    I voted for no buyout.

    I would like to see a minimum of 1 season ban on top of the remainder of the current season but have the option to buy out the full season ban.

    If you ban someone, and or have multiple bans, LG is will be funded by cancerous players that still get what the want which is to play and have chance at another roll at making a contender team. Which like mentioned above is good for profit margins, but won't correct anything long term.

    The Bans should make you not want to do things twice in my opinion.

    This type of thing should be at the discretion of the BOGs or possibly a different infraction altogether. Stuff like quitting because your ego is hurt or you didn't get your way should not be able to be bought out. Making a silly mistake is totally different than the issues that plague this league with people quitting, trolling, double tagging, general asshattery, racism etc should stay banned for the duration. On top of that letting NHL owners on XBOX play CHL on PlayStation is also a stain on this league that needs to be corrected.
